For above all things Love means sweetness, and truth, and measure; yea, loyalty to the loved one and to your word. And because of this I dare not meddle with so high a matter.
Marie de France

If one of two lovers is loyal, and the other jealous and false, how may their friendship last, for Love is slain!Marie de France
